Subject: [Boost-build] Would like help debugging MinGW problem
From: Jeremiah Willcock (jewillco_at_[hidden])

The regression test libs/graph/test/graphviz_test.cpp is failing on all
MinGW platforms by throwing an unhandled exception. The code is supposed
to throw an exception, but it is wrapped in a try block that specifically
catches the exception being thrown; this code is around line 193 in the
test case. The test passes on almost all other platforms, including other
GCC configurations and VC++ on Windows. Is this a problem in the
platform? Are there known issues with exceptions on MinGW?
<URL:> suggests that the
compiler needs -mthreads for exceptions to work properly. Does the
regression test (that doesn't use threads) work with this flag? Any help
would be appreciated.
